IACC Recommended Budget: $5,000,000 over 3 years
| 7.K. Funding: The recommended budget was met. Significantly more than the recommended minimum budget was allocated to projects specific to this objective. Many of the fellowship grants are coded according to the specific topic of the research conducted and thus are not represented in this funding figure.
Progress: In 2008, NIH supported 46 autism related training/fellowship grants ($5.1 million), and in 2012 NIH supported 78 such grants ($7.7 million).
Remaining Gaps, Needs and Opportunities: This objective should continue to be encouraged with a possible future emphasis on services-based research.
